Africa’s Gold Coast: Exploring History, Culture & Contemporary Affairs on a Voyage From Ghana to Senegal

ABOUT THE TOUR

In a Ghanaian market, a woman pounds dough into fufu with a mortar and pestle. Cars zip around villagers in zigzag gowns of crimson, orange, and indigo, balancing baskets on their heads. This is Africa, right now – a myriad-hued mosaic of cultures, landscapes, and ancient wilderness with a richness and diversity that’s difficult to comprehend. This is the Africa that few people have a chance to see, a vast continent of awe-inspiring beauty, natural drama, hope, promise, friendship, and generosity. Many past travelers say that a trip to Africa changed their lives – broadening their imagination of the world in extraordinary ways. Our cruise along West Africa’s coast, featuring some of the continent’s most attractive places, is rare, indeed. We are pleased to be sharing this journey with members of Commonwealth Club World Affairs and California Alumni Association whose accompanying faculty member is Vincent H. Resh, Professor of Environmental Science and Policy & Management at UC Berkeley. He will share his experience and expertise with us in a series of lectures and discussions throughout the voyage. Your vessel for this extraordinary journey, the Swan Hellenic Diana, is a state-of-the-art, new-generation expedition cruise ship, launched in early 2023. Accommodating only 192 guests in beautifully appointed staterooms and balcony suites, Diana features several lounges, a restaurant, outdoor cafe, spa, library and beauty salon, and is equipped with the latest safety and environmentally-friendly technology.
